Author has written 5 stories for Dragon Age.
Hello there! I have been a member of this community for a while now, so I thought it might be appropriate to change up my profile a little. My interest in fanfic took root after I finished my very first play through of Dragon Age: Origins. I can't even begin to tell you how hooked I was on seeing the Warden's adventures continue. I found this website by chance and was first completely wow-ed by the quality of some of the writers I ran across. It wasn't long until I ran into stories by wonderful folks like Violet Theirin and Ladyamesindy. It got to a point that I was so excited when I got an alert for one of their stories that I would drop everything that I was doing just so I could go read! Eventually, through them I also found the wonderful Erynnar. Again, I was hooked. The more I read of their wonderful tales the more I was inspired to work on some stories of my own. I figured that if I had even a quarter of their talent in weaving a tale that I would be happy with the results. Without them, (whether they choose to recognize it or not) I would have never tried my hand at fanfic. I am thankful that they are such wonderful writers and ladies.
Up to this point I have been working on 3 major stories of my own. On two I have hit a bit of a standstill, but I am hoping that I will be able to crank some chapters out for them soon. The third is kind of my baby at the moment...An Anders/FemHawke tale that has been clawing to get out of my head since my first play through of Dragon Age II.
I am never really that busy and now that I have some experience with the site I am open to taking Beta Requests. If you would like for me to Beta for you please read my beta profile carefully and make sure that I'm what you're looking for. If you find that I am, I look forward to joining the efforts of other Dragon Age fans to flesh out stories to make it an even better experience!
Name: Oh, Hello! My Name is Stacy!
Pen Name: StellaSmooth, which I always thought would be a fantastic name for a DJ. yes? DJ StellaSmooth just sounds cool.
Born: August 4, 1980 in Washington D.C. ( I love it there, it's a true melting pot...and I do love cheese.)
Current Residence: I have lived here and there due to my time in the military, but I am currently living in a small town called Amherst in Virginia. I live with my mother, our 4 cats (Masquerade, Luna, Indiana and Gideon) and 3 dogs (Chelsea, Belle, and Tilley). It's a very chill atmosphere.
Favorite Book(s): The Divine Comedy, The Stolen Throne, The Books of Blood, anything by J.R.R. Tolkien, Matthew Reilly, and James Rollins. I also love a good 'ol smutty bodice ripper every once in a while...especially Sherrilyn Kenyon type supernatural romances.
Favorite Music: I listen to a lot of rock music, though I'm pretty open to just about anything as long as they're not talking about busting a cap in someone or whatnot. I can't listen to country music either really. My favorite bands include: Killswitch Engage, 30 Seconds to Mars, Tool, A Perfect Circle, Nine Inch Nails, Modest Mouse, and many many more.
Hobbies: I think this changes by the week, but keeps in a pretty tight circle of writing, drawing, photography and playing guitar. I'm also a crazy gamer. I played 3 years of WoW (though I got rather bored of it finally and suspended the account.), a few months of Aion (which ended up having WAY too much unfair pvp), a year or so of Lord of the Rings Online (which I still play on Nimrodel Server), and Guildwars (which I also set aside, but could POSSIBLY be conned into playing again for the right people. haha). Aside from MMO's I also love plain old single player RPGs like Dragon Age (which is a bit of an obsession still.) I'm also a pretty big fan of Dragon Age 2. There are PLENTY of things that I don't like about it, but there are definitely things that I see as an improvement. The conversation wheel is NOT one of them.
Favorite Character: My favorite Dragon Age character is Bann Teagan, the very first time I met him in game it was love at first sight. He just seems so noble and loveable (not to mention that verbal slap in the face to that beeotch Anora). If he had been a romance option I would have dropped Alistair like a bad habit, no question. Don't get me wrong Alistair Fangirls, he's great...but Teagan Guerrin is RAWR. A close second for me would be Zevran. His romance is so complex. As far as DA II goes...my heart belongs only to Anders. He is my kitten-loving, super hot smoochy, paranoid, fade spirit possessed terrorist of AWESOME! Dammit, Anders! I also have a major thing for Flemeth. To me, she always give some of the best advice in the game. Though I wouldn't trust her as far as I could throw her I still think she is one of the best written characters to span the games.
"The hottest places in Hell are reserved for those who, in a period of moral crisis, maintain their neutrality." ~Dante Alighieri
"She's one Archdemon short of a Blight!" ~ PC, Dragon Age: Origins
"You are required to do nothing, least of all believe. Close one's eyes tight or open one's arms wide...either way, one's a fool." ~Flemeth
"Don't confuse fame with success. Madonna is one; Helen Keller is the other." ~Erma Bombeck
"We stand upon the precipice of change. The world fears the inevitable plummet into the abyss. Watch for that moment...and when it comes, do not hesitate to leap. It is only when you fall that you learn whether or not you can fly." ~Flemeth
About Me: I always avoid this question because it is so vague. What about me is important enough to go here? What do people REALLY want to know about me? So, on that note, If you have something you really want to know send me a message...I'll update you right away! =)
